Summer 2019 Atelier Experience Sessions


This week-long seminar is an opportunity for participants to work independently, side-by-side with Joynoelle designer, Joy Teiken, in her South Minneapolis Atelier.

Participants will be given several  project options or they may come with self-guided ideas knowing that basic patterning, draping, and construction techniques will be taught. A phone consultation will occur the week prior to the first day so Joy will understand the student's experience and concepts.

Designers will be encouraged to create a 3 piece capsule collection that will be shown during a salon-style presentation the final evening. 


This seminar is open to ages 14 and older and all skill levels (some sewing experience and machine usage is best).  Joy will teach individuals and small groupings the basic skills of pattern-making and draping.  

Basic sewing machines are provided as well as some fabric and notions.  Designers may wish to bring their own machines.
